Eddie Lacy canít call himself a Pro Bowler quite yet, but All-Pro isnít a bad consolation.

It was announced Friday both Lacy and left guard Josh Sitton were selected to the All-Pro second team, which is voted on by a panel of 50 Associated Press voters.

The Packers didnít have a player voted onto the Pro Bowl team for the first time since 2005, but Sitton and Lacy were critical parts of the Packersí running game improving from 20th (106.4 yards per game) last season to seventh (133.5 ypg) this year.

After going 43 games without a 100-yard rusher, the Packers had six runners surpass that mark this season (Lacy 4, James 1, Johnathan Franklin 1).

ďIím very excited about it,Ē said Lacy, whoís a first alternate for the Pro Bowl. ďI never thought Iíd be in something like that. Iím very excited for this and that achievement. I just hope I can keep playing and continue to get better.Ē

Sitton made the switch to left guard this season after being on the right side for the first five years of his NFL career. Packers coach Mike McCarthy said Sitton responded with his best season despite going to the Pro Bowl last year.

ďIt took really a few games into the season to get used to playing over there,Ē Sitton said. ďIt took longer than I thought to get used to, but itís definitely worked out and props to the coaches for making that switch.Ē
